    I read this when it was part of Holy and Hopeful Hearts. I dearly love Caroline Warfield's characters, and these two are a joy. The contract scene was particularly precious. Esther is a strong capable woman, determined to be an equal in her marriage, and to have friends outside of her close knit Jewish community. Adam, her father's protege, catches her eye but his traditional views on a wife's role and Gentile friends will just not do. Caroline uses a masterly hand in making Adam's growth during the novella convincing and appealing. I loved this book.

    Too long-winded for a novella. But it was nice to know about Jewish traditions.
